I gargle with warm salt water and take plenty of Vitamin D
I gargle with warm salt water
And take plenty of Vitamin D
I live in California
Where I soak it up, for free
I eat food fresh and organic
Grown by people that I know
I drive a clunker car
Too fuel efficient by far
To cash in when SUV drivers
Raked in the dough.

I "believe" in synchronicity
Because it believes in me
I watch the moon and stars go by, up in the sky
For all the world to see
I listen to the birds sing
And watch the river flow
And online and IRL
The phonies' cover I will blow.

So if you have a false agenda
And hide behind degrees
And toxic innuenda
And hop around like fleas
Trying to intimidate and frighten
Those who you can't charge a fee
Because they've found ways
Around your power plays
And heal themselves patent free

Please ask yourselves
What you've gained
By portraying your industry
In such terms
By bullying and bludgeoning
Until your victim squirms
Like a sample on a glass slide
Beneath your skeptic scopic lens
Pounding away at reality, demanding
Pounding
Until the truth for you bends.

But all you've really done
Is kill it
That life you pretend to guard
And one day or
Long dark night you wake up
And wonder
How you ever became so hard
So dried up and deluded
So bent to your masters' will
That rather than see
People well for free
You'd sooner charge and see them ill.
